, michelle obama, is hitting the campaign trail a bit. she took on the campaign's fight for some more money. and as i said, the start of the campaign about to kick off. day two, the gold medal pledge of allegiance. we'll explain what's going on. and uterine cancers. a i even wrote a play about that. my symptoms were a pain in my abdomen and periods that were heavier and longer than usual for me. if you have symptoms that last two weeks or longer, be brave, go to the doctor. ovarian and uterine cancers are gynecologic cancers. symptoms are not the same for everyone. i got sick...and then i got better. ♪ [ male announcer ] the first look...is only the beginning. ♪ ♪ introducing a stunning work of technology. ♪ introducing the entirely new lexus es. and the first ever es hybrid. this is the pursuit of perfection. try the #1 gastroenterologist recommended probiotic. align. align naturally helps maintain digestive balance. ♪ ooh, baby, can i do for you today? ♪ try align today. >>> fresh from her big speech last night the first lady michelle obama was talking to smaller audiences
is that obviously this is the finale. they feel that michelle obama knocked it out of the park talking about her husband as a husband and in terms of his character. president clinton obviously framed the debate when it comes to the issues they feel like. and he is going to be the one who talks about himself and what he will do if he gets a second chance, a chance at four more years, wolf. >> what about the other speeches tonight, dana? i know the vice president's got a major speech. that will precede the president. but there will be other speeches as well. >> that's right. let's start with the vice president's speech. i just talk today a source familiar with that speech who said it's going to be kind of a series of anecdotes talking about what it has been like to serve at the president's side. and their goal there is to, again, serve as a bit of a character witness, but more specific to president obama's leadership style, how he makes decisions and things like that. i was told that it is a "very generous speech" when it comes to the kind of person president obama is. and of course joe biden is n
. it sounds a little bit like michelle obama's speech when she tried to link policy and the person. so this is also a guy joe biden, the vice president who's been in on some of these decisions, he had a famous phrase which i guess we can't repeat on television to describe when health care passed. what's interesting about this through the prism of joe biden is this is a man who has not ruled out a 2016 run. so a lot will be looked at in this speech. this has been a man who's been quite loyal to president obama, done him a lot of go ahead. he has gone off the reservation as we say a couple of times. but he has done what they've asked of him. and, you know, the question is what happens next? over the next four years. we saw the powerful speech from bill clinton. and of course if you talked to folks out here after bill clinton last night, who do they all want to ask about? hillary clinton. it sets up a really interesting dynamic of a sitting vice president who's been very loyal to this president and of course hillary clinton who said she doesn't want to run. but certainly joe biden has sai
speech for michelle obama. big show for you this morning. we're going to be talking to chicago's mayor and former white house chief of staff rahm emanuel. robert gibbs, the former white house spokesman turned campaign adviser is with us. san antonio mayor julian castro and along with his twin brother, texas state rep joaquin castro and the actor john leguizamo is with us.

of barack obama's first-term record, and they are deploying him now in swing states, even more than michelle obama, he's probably the biggest asset they have. but life is long. you never know when you're going to end up, that these two men are now embracing to this extent. >> life is really long. >> you know, the president got a bounce at the convention, and it's arguable that clinton played a big part in that. we have this new pew research center poll that i found real estate interesting. it showed, when they were asking, what was the highlight of the democratic convention, 29% bill clinton's speech, 16% said the president's speech, and michelle obama's speech was at 15%. so does that also mean that there is a downside to having president clinton -- >> oh, you mean overshadowing -- you know, he -- everybody knows hays not the candidate. i think he's a great character witness for the candidate. i think there was a dangerous dangeat the convention of that kind of a result, because you want your candidate to shine, not the person who is testifying on your behalf to shine. but i think right now
for the president with all of this talk. you had michelle obama talking about what the president believes in and who he cares about. president clinton explained the past. now it is just ready for barack obama to explain what he will do in the future. if this convention has a rhythm, it has a direction, it has an excitement. i think it is great, and i think i can't predict whether there will be a big bounce after it, but i would bet the predicate for a gradual ascension of the democratic ticket in november. >> every american did not watch it, though. >> unfortunately. >> my question would be do they take what bill clinton did in some ways sort of prof sorrial. >> the scene, and you go to black churches and they go preach, baby, preach, to the minister. this is teach, baby, teach. he was teaching america. >> does he take that on the road literally with a white board and says you have heard about medicare. here. >> i talked to him. >> here is the facts, here is what's really going on. >> i talked to the president before the speech for quite a bit, and first he put a lot of effort into it. it sounded li
